    Holm's little tom is Royal Palm and Bourbon Red. So bred to Ethel you could get Rusty Royal Bourbons! Cheers! :lol:

    Daisy is single & looking....:lau

    I do the same thing. Make up crosses with my two. It's fun...but addictive. His birds are gorgeous. I swear I could own one of each.

    Oh, I would not let Ethel sit out the season, I think I stated that wrong, when I said I would hold JJ out, I did not mean from Ethel. as long as they can breed, I will let them breed, they just produce too many colors I cannot get any other way.

    I really stumbled in a great pair when I got them, and to think I thought I was getting blue slates and the person I got them from thought they were blue slates too!

    That name is too cumbersome.. Maybe "Milk chocolate cover cherries" would work for the name

    It is. I ran penguin though it to see what I would get, but there was not a lot of variety for me.

    Now if someone would just come and get Penguin... Life would be good.

    Oh, I forgot to tell you guys about my Guinea Hen serving a life sentence in the Guinea Gulag. I put a ankle Bracelet on her. I am thinking of putting my other guineas in with her and I want to be able to tell her apart come spring. She is so lucky she is a hen or she would have been eaten by now!.
